Fruit failure: Mother Nature deals area farmers and eaters a blow — few apples and even fewer peaches

I feel your pain. My one and only faithful peach tree has nary a peach on it this year. Sniffle.

Failed summer reads

I think War and Peace was the only book where I ever skipped parts. I skipped the political ranting parts and got back to the romance with Natasha. I am with you on Moby Dick - I have started it many times and never finished - and I am an English Lit major who is known to read Shakespeare for fun. The hardest part is giving yourself permission to chuck it in if it's not going well.

Either one. Mostly it was just me allowing my random thoughts to spew out again. Sorry!

The Death of the Album?

Yeah, it doesn't matter these days whether you can write well, or sing well, or play an instrument at all. You have to be YOUNG, and BEAUTIFUL, and preferably scantily dressed.

I can't watch Idol, it makes me gag. Half those cretins can't carry a tune, but as long as they look good (debateable given a couple I've seen) and can shake that thang for the cameras, they are stars.

That said, I do think at least one or two of the winners are pretty talented.

Random thoughts

I am awakened each dawn by a chorus of tom cats yowling outside my bedroom window. Or sometimes one of them is outside the door. We have two toms (Well, one is neutered but apparently nobody told HIM that) and they either go out together or separately in the evenings. If they are separate, then they have to switch places in the morning. Or both go out, or both go in. You get the idea. We also have a visiting Tom who likes to intimidate my boys as they come in or out of the door. They are at the point where they just yowl and hiss, they don't fight anymore.

Then there is my 4 pound female who "stampedes" across the living room beginning at 5 a.m. Lap after lap, across the LR, up the kitchen stairs, turn around and go back. How does a 4# cat sound like an elephant, anyhow?

What I'm Reading 2007: Vol. 1

Just finished Margaret Truman's "Murder in the CIA" Very interesting info about hypnosis and spying in the Cold War era. Not to mention a fabulously plotted spy/mystery.
Getting addicted to her stuff, this is my third or fourth in a couple of weeks.

Also finished "Shop til you Drop" by Elaine Viets. A somewhat comedic mystery, part of a series called The Dead End Job Mysteries.

I'm thankful for...

I can't think of anything more intelligent to say to that than:
